(CNN) — Pope Francis said Wednesday night from Vatican City, “The duty of the conclave was to appoint a bishop of Rome and it seems to me that my brother cardinals have chosen one who is from far away, but here I am.”

After saying the Our Father prayer, the newly elected Pope Francis said Wednesday night, “Let us pray always for one another. Let us pray for the whole world … Let us have a big brotherhood.”

    Please post the entire text of what Pope Francis said. I think he granted a Plenary Indulgence, which is extraordinary.
